A leading provider of software to UK venues has welcomed the findings of a new survey that highlights needs in the industry for super-flexible technology.
More than 70 VIP guests from major venues gathered at a breakfast briefing to hear the results of the Londonlaunch survey this week, which revealed that almost half are not satisfied with the technology they are currently using.
Hosting the event was Luis De Souza, CEO of NFS Technology, who sponsored the survey.
He said: “We were delighted to sponsor the Londonlaunch venues survey because as venue technology providers we are always interested in gaining an even deeper insight into what the industry really needs.
“It’s clear from the findings that many venues do not have the technology solutions and tools for venue management they need or desire to have.”
The survey, which was sent out to 500 venues, found that many are relying on a mish-mash of technologies that fail to provide the level of support that an advanced and integrated management system can provide.
Luis said: “In today’s challenging trading climate, this is a concern.
“This is a highly profitable sector of UK hospitality market providing a huge boost to the country’s economy. However, these are challenging and competitive times, and to stay that way, the industry needs and deserves more flexible and responsive technology.”
NFS is a major international provider of venue management technology to prestigious venues across the country including the British Airways i360 in Brighton and CEME in Rainham, Essex.
This year, the company launched Rendezvous V5, an enhanced venue management system designed with the needs of venues particularly in mind.
Luis said: “We are always developing our software to meet the changing and evolving needs of our customers, and this survey has provided valuable data on current thinking and requirements that will inform our continuing work.
“Rendezvous V5 is working well for our clients, and we will go on seeking important input from venue owners and managers to make sure they get the technology they need and deserve.”
He thanked Londonlaunch for carrying out the survey, and said he was delighted to see so many prestigious venues represented at the briefing, which was held at the Curzon in London.
“Our thanks go our to our guests, who showed a tremendous appetite for the latest information on how digital technology can help them boost their business,” he said.
“Their enthusiasm and their feedback from this excellent event is greatly appreciated.”
